Sonder launches new disability services

Sonder, South Australia’s leading provider of mental health services is now providing NDIS services to young people and adults with a psychosocial disability in Adelaide’s southern metropolitan region.

Over the past 29 years, Sonder has earned a solid reputation for the delivery of high quality, evidence-based clinical psychological therapy services.

Expanding on the organisation’s existing expertise in the provision of mental health services, today Sonder announces an expansion of their service delivery to provide services through the NDIS for young people and adults with a psychosocial disability.

Sonder’s NDIS Plus services are designed to support young people and adults with a disability to; improve their wellbeing, live active and healthy lives, overcome personal barriers, access personalised and culturally relevant services, and find meaningful employment.

In addition to psychosocial recovery coaching, the organisation is also set to announce the launch of a range of other NDIS services throughout the coming months, including psychological therapy, counselling, and positive behaviour support.

Kyp Boucher, Executive Manager, Disability Services at Sonder said, “Our approach to the delivery of disability services is unique in that clients can access support for a broad range of health and wellbeing needs, in addition to their needs directly related to their disability, all from the one provider.”

This approach ensures every client is in the best position to have their broader health and wellbeing needs met and achieve the life they want.

The organisation’s team of multi-disciplinary professionals work with each individual client to understand their unique needs and goals and then facilitate access to a variety of services at Sonder that best meet those needs, including nutrition and exercise, alcohol and/or other drugs, chronic disease management and employment.

This unique, integrated approach to service delivery takes the hassle out of getting the supports the individual needs and ensures they are getting the most out of their NDIS plan.

Sonder’s new Psychosocial Recovery Coaching service provides ongoing support to individuals living with a psychosocial disability. The organisation’s Recovery Coaches work with individuals to understand their needs and create a tailored plan which supports their personal recovery journey.

Recovery coaching focuses on empowering individuals by building on strengths and increasing motivation, resilience, and the ability to make decisions so they can better manage any challenges they encounter in day-to-day living.

Sonder’s Psychosocial Recovery Coach Service is delivered from centres located in Marion and Onkaparinga. Individuals also have the convenient option of accessing the service at their home or at a location in the community.
